AZUSA, Calif. – Senior guard Dominique Johnson and sophomore guard Marshall Johnson (no relation) have been named to the 14-player 2010 All-GSAC team as selected by conference coaches.
For Dominique, a 2009 NAIA All-American, this is his second straight all-conference award. He closed the 2010 regular season second in the GSAC in scoring (17.1 avg.). Over the course of this year’s 30-game season, he registered a trio of 30-point contests, all against GSAC foes, including a season-high 33 vs. the NAIA’s current No. 1-ranked team Concordia University.
He ranks among the GSAC’s ten best this season in 3-point field goals made, numbers boosted by the school-record tying 8 that he drained at Biola University in February. In that same game against Biola, Johnson scored his 1,000th career point as a Cougar, needing just 57 games to reach that plateau.
Dominique has proven to be more than just a scorer as well. He registered 7 games with 7 or more rebounds, 5 games with 4 or more assists and tallied 9 games with 2 or more steals. In the middle of the season he put together a 9-game stretch in which he averaged 19.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.4 steals per outing.
Dominique becomes the 14th Cougar to be a 2-time All-GSAC selection, joining the likes of Bill DesRochers, Azusa Pacific’s all-time leading scorer, and All-Americans T.J. Walker and Caleb Gervin.
Marshall picks up the first all-conference honor of his brief college career after averaging 13.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 30 games played. He is currently tenth in the GSAC in scoring, 15th in assists and seventh in 3-point field goal percentage (.407/37-for-91). He scored in double figures in all but 5 games, including back-to-back 20-point efforts at home against Point Loma Nazarene and Fresno Pacific.
He is coming off his most complete outing of the season in which he tallied a team-high 19 points, including 9 in the final 7 minutes to lead Azusa Pacific back from 13 down, to go along with 5 rebounds and 4 assists in a victory at Westmont College.
